What does El Gato mean on TikTok?
El Gato is a Spanish word that means The Cat. It is a sound from a Demon Slayer episode in which Arigatō was said.
However, many TikTok users have been spamming El Gato comments on videos that use this sound.
Where did “El Gato” come from?
El Gato saying is from a Demon Slayer episode that sees Suma while crying, showing appreciation to Tengen Uzui in Japanese. From the TikTok video, we witnessed Suma saying Arigatō, a Japanese word that means Thank you in the English language.
This, when heard, sounds like El Gato, meaning The Cat in English. As a result, people thought Suma said El Gato instead of Arigatō. However, this means that they are using the wrong but in the correct way.
El Gato started as a trend on TikTok and later became very popular. It also has an effect created after it which can be used to create a 3D model of a cat. Content creators can use this effect for free.
